ANZACBT is an organisation for people interested in Cognitive and Behavioural psychological therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

ANZACBT was established in 2010 and in that time we have organised a number of successful conferences, workshops, educational events, presentations, as well as consulted to governmental organisations.

Assalam u alaikum

It is now 3 weeks since the terrible atrocity that occurred against Muslim people while in prayer in Christchurch. We pay our respects to our Muslim brothers and sisters who lost their lives, and their families and friends who are grieving.  We acknowledge that this act of violence will have impacted the sense of security of Muslim people and our work going forward will be to support and assist where we can and act to speak out against racism where ever we find it.

We wish to convey our grateful thanks to Dr Sue Cowie for her advice and help writing this message.

Te Pou Talking Therapies Toolkit

Te Pou are pleased to announce that they have launched the first four tools from their Let’s get talking toolkit. These tools are designed to support primary and secondary services to deliver effective talking therapies, and help determine which therapies are best for their communities, as well as the skills and knowledge needed for practitioners.

The toolkit supports planning and delivery of talking therapies using a stepped care approach. We invite you to take a look at Te Pou's Let’s get talking: Introduction video which they developed to help people understand more about stepped care in relation to talking therapies.

You can read more about Let’s get talking and access the tools at www.tepou.co.nz/letsgettalking.
